Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption Celebrates National Adoption Month
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption’s mission is to dramatically increase the number of adoptions from foster care in the U.S. and Canada.
There are more than 134,000 children waiting in foster care to be adopted. Through our signature program, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, the Foundation furnishes grants to adoption agencies that use those funds to hire specially trained adoption recruiters.
These recruiters work with children who are most at risk of aging out without being adopted. Our evidence-based, child-focused recruitment works and is three times more likely to find permanent, loving homes for children who have been in foster care the longest.

Helping children move from foster care to permanent homes is a challenge in the United States. Many children age out of the system without ever having found a loving adoptive family. Aging out without the support of a loving family can have negative consequences on a person’s future. The Dave Thomas Foundation is working to connect more foster children with the families they deserve.
